A National Reassessment: Exploring Variables that Predispose People with Disabilities to Vocational Rehabilitation Acceptance
Wilson, Keith B.; Gines, Jason E.
Rehabilitation Education, v23 n2 p159-170 2009
Vocational rehabilitation (VR) acceptance has been explored by many research teams over the last 30 years. However, none of the prior studies explored the multitude of demographic variables that may influence VR acceptance and the possible interactions of those variables with VR acceptance. Extrapolating demographic variables from the national RSA-911 database of persons who sought vocational rehabilitation services, a Chi-squared Automatic Interaction Detector (CHAID) and the backwards elimination method of entry were used as the test statistic. Race, education, monthly public assistance at application, and marital status, respectively, were significantly correlated to VR acceptance. Implications for VR counselors and educators are discussed. (Contains 1 table.)
